“These ‘Best Place to Work’ awards are the direct reflection of our employees’ perceptions,” said Larry Myers, chief people officer and executive vice president, T-Mobile USA. “They represent how our employees feel about the company, our work environment, career opportunities and the pride they take in their work. Ultimately, our customers are the winners when our employees deliver an exceptional customer experience.”

The five recent “Best Place to Work” awards include the following:

The St. Petersburg Times and partner WorkplaceDynamics surveyed 24,505 workers from the Tampa Bay area and scored the responses using several factors. Only the top 70 workplaces made the cut, and T-Mobile won third place in the large company division.
